Colorado Business Roundtable would like to thank Bill Miller of the D.C. Business Roundtable (BRT) for presenting at the BRT Briefing and Reception event. We would also like to thank all of those that attended this event. We hope you enjoyed yourself and learned a little bit about the issues going on at D.C.
In attendance were some great BRT and COBRT partner companies: IBM, Anadarko, Walgreens, Ball Corp, Aetna, Deloitte, BNSF Railway, and others.
The Reception was attended by Sec. of State Wayne Williams, Canadian Consul General Stephane Lessard, Rep. Paul Lundeen, Rep Lawrence, representatives from Mexican Consulate, Congressman Coffman, Jim Ogsbury with Western Governors and more.
As key takeaway points, we saw the importance of timely, relevant business updates on tax reform, regulatory reform, health care bill, infrastructure improvements, and ATC privatization. In addition, with change in leadership at the BRT, it was a great chance to hear firsthand about the new leadership and focus for BRT moving forward.
